HK Acting Legend Tony Leung Celebrates 60th Birthday on June 27th After 4 Decades in the Industry

Legends never die and some never even grow old, or grow that old. HK actor Tony Leung, arguably the best actor in his generation and in the entire industry, hit a big milestone this June 27th turning 60 years old. His wife Carina Lau kicked off the well wishes on SNS and many more followed from his HK colleagues. He’s turning 60 a year after getting his career exposure to a new level with the success of Marvel superhero movie Shang Chi and the Legend of the 10 Rings where he ostensibly played the antagonist but really stole the whole movie.
